Tulip to reopen factory with £15m investment creating 120 jobs
Tulip has announced plans to reopen its Bromborough factory from August and has launched a major recruitment drive, creating over 120 job roles in the local area.
A wide-ranging number of roles will be available across operational positions, as well as engineering and technical apprenticeships.
Production at the site will begin later this month and is supported with a £15m investment, introducing state-of-the-art food manufacturing technology and equipment, as the site looks to become a centre of excellence for the UK’s fresh pork manufacturing.
Operations will initially focus on the production of higher welfare, Red Tractor and EU fresh pork for retail customers, with scope for further growth and expansion in the future.
As production commences, Julian Weeks has been newly appointed to the position of site director at Tulip Bromborough. Julian moves into his new role having spent 10 years within the retail side of the organisation, most recently as customer director. A successor to Julian’s current role will be announced in due course.
Andrew Cracknell, chief executive of Tulip, said: “The re-opening of our site in Bromborough, which comes with significant capital investment and job creation, is great news for our business, the local community and our customers.
“Julian’s track record within the business and across the wider industry speaks for itself and his commercial insight and integrity will help to drive a real culture of ownership and accountability as we look to build a business based on solid, customer-centric foundations.”
Julian Weeks, site director for Tulip Bromborough, added: “I am very much looking forward to this new challenge and building a high-performing team as we work to establish Bromborough as a true centre of excellence. We are looking for smart, hard-working and enthusiastic individuals to join our team, in order to support initial production volumes with operations commencing in August.”
